While running a checkzone, one of my users is getting this error:

dns_master_load: /var/named/var/named:1: isc_lex_gettoken() failed: I/O
dns_master_load: /var/named/var/named:1: I/O error

Google isn't helping me too much.

We're thinking maybe it's terminal related - a user has had success
using an xterm, but me and others are using SecureCRT and have problems.

Can anyone say what this error actually means?  We're a little stumped
at what's going on.
